    Hi there,

    We have a very patchy wi-fi network here. The wi-fi router's pretty old and I tend to need to switch it off and on every couple of days. Is there an app I can use that will - perhaps in conjunction with Locale so it only runs when I'm in the office - periodically check if our wi-fi connection is up and running?

    Thanks for any recommendations.

    No worries, I think I found a solution. I have Locale set up to switch wi-fi on and 3G off whenever I'm in the office, and then I also have a little app (WiFi Status) running in the background which displays an icon if you have wi-fi switched on but are not connected to a network. I suppose the idea is that it's supposed to save battery life but it also functions fine for my purpose.
